LONE PINE, OR -- A teen driver was flown to the hospital with possible head injuries, Saturday, following a crash on NW Lone Pine Road, about 20 miles northwest of Prineville. Redmond firefighters used the "jaws of life" to pull the victim out of a Honda sedan.

 

According to the Crook County Sheriff's Office, the teen was southbound on Lone Pine Road when the car veered into the shoulder during a curve, at about 1:45 p.m. The driver over-corrected, causing the car to swerve left, rotate and cross into the oncoming lane. The back of the Honda then collided with the front of a northbound pickup, which was unable to avoid the crash. The pickup driver was not hurt. 

 

Investigators say the road was covered in loose cinders, which may have contributed to the driver losing control. The Sheriff's Office says this is a reminder for drivers to be cautious and slow down, as winter weather conditions can vary. Roads can remain icy in shady areas, while other areas are covered with loose cinder rocks after ice melts.
